Sine Qua Non The Hoodoo Man 2006



The intense, distinctive wines of Elaine and Manfred Krankl are highly sought after for good reason: they are some of the very best wines being produced in the United States. And though the wines are already of the highest quality and sell out quickly each vintage, the Krankls continue to strive to make improvements. For those who have had the pleasure (and luck) to taste these wines over the years, one can notice even more refinement and harmony in each new release.

Wine AdvocateThe newest cuvee of white wine, the 2006 The Hoo Doo Man, is a 568-case blend of 39% Roussanne and the rest essentially equal parts Viognier and Chardonnay. This exceptional effort is a model example of what can be done with white varietals in California's Central Coast. An exceptional bouquet of lemon blossom, nectarine, orange marmalade-infused honey, quince, and citrus are stunningly aromatic and provide profound richness, yet the freshness, precision, and overall lift are remarkable for a wine of this power and intensity. It offers a prodigious glass of dry white wine that should drink handsomely for a decade. In short, I call it "How do he do it man."
